Mourinho tells fringe players they failed

”If players who played 90 minutes two days ago were fantastic I expect
people who are not playing a lot to raise the level to create me problems.
They didn’t create me big problems.”

But the boss said Drogba was an example to the rest of his squad after his key
role.

He said: ”Yes I was worried when they equalised but we go through and
Didier played a massive part in that.

”Hopefully he will be good for the weekend but we will have to see
because right now his character is stronger than his body.

”Maybe what he has done today is through his character – not his body.

”That’s what makes players special and any of the young players lucky
enough to play alongside him, learn from that.”

Drogba added: ”I played here before, with Galatasaray. Shrewsbury have
improved since then. It was difficult with the weather. I wouldn’t say I
enjoyed the game. It was difficult but I started playing in places like this.”

Shrewsbury scared Chelsea at Greenhous Meadow and impressed in the first half
with Nathaniel Knight-Percival forcing Petr Cech into a save and Bobby Grant
also went close.

They return to Sky Bet League Two action at Dagenham on Saturday and boss
Micky Mellon complimented Mourinho’s style.

He said: ”Jose was brilliant. I can’t speak about the guy highly enough
and he was a perfect gentleman. He’s done some stuff for the local kids and
I had 25 minutes with him before the game and he was very complimentary
about our team.

”He’s an example to any young manager with the way you should operate.”
